Time to Talk
Are you feeling unhappy, confused or anxious about anything in your life?
By talking things through with a counsellor it could help you understand your feelings and start to make positive changes in your life.
Adviza runs Time to Talk in Reading and Buckinghamshire. It's a free, confidential counselling service available to all young people aged 11 – 19 (up to 25 years for young people with additional needs).
Counselling allows you to talk about your problems and feelings in a confidential and safe environment. We provide a place where you can discuss all kinds of concerns including:
Family Relationships School
Exams Work Stress
Anxiety Drugs Anger
Bereavement Bullying Depression
Low self-esteem Disability Illness
Self-harm Abuse and more
You will have an initial assessment when you will talk to a qualified and experienced counselling co-ordinator who will answer any questions that you have and explain how it works. Following the initial assessment, you will be placed on a waiting list while your counselling co-ordinator arranges the right counsellor for you. You will also be offered the option of 6 sessions of online web chat or telephone counselling while you wait for face-to-face counselling to begin. This is free of charge and entirely optional.
Help in Schools
If you work in a school, we offer a counselling service with a Time to Talk volunteer, who is placed at your school for up to 3 hours per week, free of charge, for students who you believe can benefit from counselling. We also work closely with CAMHS and can put you in touch with relevant professionals to establish or refine your pastoral care activities.
We also offer counselling for adults which start from £10 - £45 depending on the level of experience of your counsellor.
